Placement Year

Relevant work experience can help to make students more employable, and also increase their degree classification. In order to facilitate this within the Faculty of Business and Law we have a dedicated Placements Office to help ensure as many students as possible benefit from real work experience.

As well as providing students with the opportunity to explore the world of work, a placement also benefits employers by offering them a chance to take on fresh, intelligent and enthusiastic young people. Our students have a high level of skill, passion and flexibility, and can offer applied and current knowledge from their studies, resourcefulness and enthusiasm.
